Obituary of David Crockett Collier, Liberty, Texas.

David Crockett Collier died at his home in Liberty Hill, Tex., on February 1, 1922. He was a native of Virginia, but came to Texas at an early age. He was born August 6, 1845, and enlisted in 1861 in the 16th Texas Infantry, Company G, and served faithfully to the close of the war, participating in the battles of Mansfield, Pleasant Hill, Millikens Bend, and Jenkin's Ferry. He had been a member of Bedford Forrest Camp No. 1609, U. C. V. since its organization.

Comrade Collier was married to Miss Anne Branch in 1869. His wife and an only daughter preceded him to the grave a number of years. For more than a half century he had been a consistent member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. A good man, a brave soldier has gone "over the river to rest under the shade of the trees," to be with the great host of those who wore the gray. [J. H. Faubion, Commander Camp Bedford Forrest No. 1609, U. C. V., Leander, Tex.]
